    large forepaws

    At first Timothy(tiger cub) appeared to be quite afraid of the puppy, and darted with a spring if it came too near. He would make absurd dashes at it with his large forepaws, and then retreat to a ridiculously safe distance.

    Here large means -- [wider(width wise bigger) or longest(height wise bigger)]?

    please help me.

    They were just bigger, in every dimension.

    Re: large forepaws

    Puppies and kittens (wild and domestic) always have oversized paws. That is, their feet are disproportionate compared to their tiny noses, ears, tails, etc. Our cat, Tweak, had such big feet as a baby that we called her "Pancake Paws."
